I like having a week to tackle a raid; as a casual guild, this gives us enough time to clear it without rushing. Hardcore guilds might not like it, but they are NOT the majority of players(get over it). Blizz should MOST DEFINITELY add SOME kind of alert that lets you know that, if you continue, you will be saved to Whatever raid: Y/N? That would solve a TON of problems for people.

That's great for raids that actually require more than one trip to complete but see my example of VOA where it just doesn't work. Also, wouldn't you agree that for people who go through it faster there should be a way to reset faster if needed?

Yeah, VoA is odd... but they are going to add more wings to it or something, so perhaps it will become a bigger raid in future that would merit the week reset?I'm not sure if there should be a way for raids to reset faster... Remember, we only have the easiest third of the raid content in the game right now, if this is going to be like previous end-games. Eventually, the people who like to move faster will have harder content that will keep them busy, and they'll stop asking for shorter lock-outs. (Well, not stop, but perhaps ask less often) It does keep a limit on the amount of badges and loot people have. That's probably the main reason for lock-outs: preventing people from amassing HUGE stores of badges and/or gear, just because they and 9/24 friends have the time to clear Naxx over and over and over and over.

Drops in VoA are on par with raids (T7 gear and all). One week timer makes sense for it.
